I really love autumn, with the lovely fresh, crisp mornings and the beautiful jewel like colours of the leaves falling from the trees.
It’s also a time to reap the rewards of your garden and celebrate all the effort that you’ve put in throughout the growing year.

Exactly one year today, we got in the car and set off north to pick up our gorgeous little Cypriot rescue dog, Buddy.

Weighing in at a skinny 8kg, he sat on mine and Grandma’s knee all the way home and instantly I was hooked, he stole my heart and my socks!
I’ve had the most amazing summer holidays, I’m almost sad that they are drawing to a close.
I’ve been singing the Louis Armstrong track, ‘What a Wonderful World’ all summer, so I rewrote the words to reflect some of the fantastic things I’ve seen.

Whilst I’ve had a bit of chill time, watching back to back episodes of Dr Who and Harry Potter films, I’ve also been busy in the garden and doing my thing as an RHS Ambassador.

Ding dong, the community group I volunteer at, has got some dosh to pay for a Young Operation Farmers’ Project.
This will give me the chance to start my wildlife gardening group, that I’ve been talking about for ages; I’m WELL excited!

Today is the start of Bees’ Needs week, which raises awareness about what we can do to help our precious bees.
Bees are so important in our gardens, for pollination – flowers, plants, fruit and veg all need them – they are an essential part of our eco-system!
We’ve got some heady smells in the garden at the moment; there’s the sweet smell of jasmine through the day, whilst the night-scented honeysuckle is looking the best it’s ever been.

Some aromatic Greek basil grown from seed, sits patiently in the greenhouse, waiting for the tomatoes to grow. It is truly a sensory overload.
